Blue cheeses are some of the most popular cheese ingredients in the kitchen. Blue cheese is a category of cheeses that contain spots or stripes of the mold Penicillium. Gorgonzola is a specific type of blue cheese, produced in Northern Italy. It has a unique taste and appearance.

Gorgonzola is known as a veined Italian blue cheese, made from unskimmed cow’s milk. The cheese can be buttery or firm, crumbly and quite salty, with a bite from its blue veining.

Nowadays, the Gorgonzola industry is worth more than $800 million. On a yearly basis, manufacturers produce more than 5 million wheels. There are only 29 dairies in the world certified to produce Gorgonzola cheese.

In this documentary, you will see how the cheese is made in a dairy in Piedmont, Italy, where 450 to 500 wheels are made each and every day.
